Cult just hasn’t had the following they expected, so it’s being pulled from the CW schedule, EW confirms.
The show – starring Vampire Diaries actor Matt David and Supernatural’s Alona Tal – has most recently aired on Fridays, but it’s next scheduled airing has been pulled to make room for an encore of the Carrie Diaries finale. Subsequent scheduled airings are being replaced by encores of Oh Sit, the network’s musical chairs competition show. (Ouch.)
No one can blame the CW, though. From the starting line, Cult failed to garner buzz. After starting its run on Tuesdays, the show was bumped to Fridays after just two episodes, where it tanked in ratings.
Cult had been set for a 13-episode freshman season, but only seven episodes have aired.
